I say 'douche' and 'douchebag' all the time and I am no millennial nor do I own an instagram account. *shrugs*

The German equivalent is better "Warmdusche" but not as good as "Sitzpisser". Much better for Instaface.
"Beckenrandschwimmer" is better than either.

Re: Did EF temporarily become Instagram for US teenagers?

How temporarily...doofus. These whatever words finally made it here, nobody uses them any longer anywhere outside, really. So my take - they will live here with us, at least for a while, before the fad blows over. The French equivalents aren't as fun, I guess?

And why do people keep referring to each other as "showers" and "shower bags"?

The German equivalent is better "Warmdusche" but not as good as "Sitzpisser". Much better for Instaface.
Not that it mattered on here, but in RL your insult better be correct. It's "Warmduscher", with a closing "r". Without one it denotes the shower, rather than the person in the shower.

Btw is "denote" the correct/best term here? Or is something else better, "indicate" perhaps?

Sitzpisser? ROFLMAO, first time I hear that one.
"Sitzpinkler" exists as well, it's a tad less offensive. "pissen" vs "pinkeln" is the same as "to piss" vs "to pee".
